Teenagers? Riiiight
21 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'll put as much imagination into this review as the film makers put into making maniacal: 1. Halloween Rip-off. 2. Shot on Video 3. Geriatric teenagers 4. Non-actors made me develop weeping, stinking, buboes. 5. Weak story. 6. Fell asleep three times trying to watch it. 7. Caused actual physical pain. 8. Will never watch it again. 9. Have made better with my own camcorder, but anything I've made is safely in a cupboard, never to be seen again. 10. Every copy of this film should be sealed in concrete and dumped in the North Sea.

Why don't these low budget film makers try harder? If you're trying to get into the business (which surely these folks are), then why not identify your shortcomings and inject the whole proceedings with a bit more imagination and a better story? I just don't get these slasher rip-offs at all. Bleh.
